to reform our tax good. bring down the rates for all americans to make it fair. they expect us to continue to expand american energy production throughout our count country. it will give us a huge advantage if we continue to develop our energy resources. and i think most americans believe that we have to stop government overregulation that's strangling our economy and economic growth. last night the president offered up more of the same. higher taxes and more stimulus spending. and just as disappointing, we're weeks away from the president's sequester and the president laid out no plan to lieliminate the sequester and the harmful cuts that will come as a result of it. republicans have twice passed bills on the sequester. it's upon democrats to show us their plan to stop the e sequester from going into effect. >> good morning. house republicans this year are going to be about making life work for more american es. now we intend to go forcefully with a plan to help folks in terms of education, in terms of health care, in terms of facilitating better work and better opportunity. now last nigh
've done in cuts, about 600 billion to 700 billion in new revenues. i'd like to see us end at a point where we're 50/50. i think the president going out to the country and saying this should be a balanced plan about 50/50, the american people agree with that. but as dana and lynn were pointing out, it's going to be hard to get to that here in the congress. and while the american people will just blame congress, and i think that's quite true they won't distinguish so much between the parties, the reality is, democrats have been willing as we've seen from the $2.2 trillion in deficit reduction we've already done to more than meet the gop half way. but the gop's going to have to be a negotiating partner with us and a lot of the fight right here on the hill right now is not between democrats and republicans. it's between republicans and republicans in the house of representatives. >> they'll be looking at congress and saying democrats or republicans, it's your fault. >> there'll be many that won't discriminate between the two parties. but here on the ground, there is, i think, recognition that
understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the ground and more time in the air. suddenly, faraway places don't seem so...far away. ♪ >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing, live in vatican city. you can see the vatican behind me. and boy, there is an interesting energy in this city. preparations underway for the conclave. that will, of course, elect the successor to pope benedict after that shocking decision yesterday to step down. and another big story we're following is back at home, because the president is putting the finishing touches on the first state of the union speech of his second term. and we'll have a lot more on that coming up in this hour. but this morning, we are starting to get new information about pope benedict, and particularly about his health. decisions that may have played into his shocking announcement to abdicate. for example, we now know this morning, the pope has had a pacemaker for some time and actually had a minor operation to replace its batteries three months ago. we're also hearing
for him, but at the same time, we understand, he makes us understand that this was a decision made with serenity. what i've heard is that he went and he divested his investments and he simply said, it's in god's hands. and i think that trust in god that he's shown for his ponti pontifica pontificate, he'll continue to follow through. >> but a kind of a paradox. this is a very traditional pope. he brought back some of the latin and pre-vatican procedures the to the mass, yet he is charting this whole new territory. i think it has a lot to do, frankly, with modern medicine and the fact that we keep people alive a lot longer, but as he pointed out, he's leading this huge organization of 1.1 billion people and it takes a certain amount of stamina and energy. >> there are two things that your comments make me think of. one, we've kind of cast him as this traditional pope, but he shows up on the scene, you know, the rottweiler, god's rottweiler, and about how god is loved. the next thing you know, he's first creating this big ruckus, but then the next thing you know, we have this incredi

who may not be as time tested with that type of crowd should learn to get used to it. we're going to see a lot as this debate goes forward. from certain members of the republican base that don't really want to see something go through that would allow illegal immigrants have a path to citizenship. >> let me play another clip from the town hall. >> you want to round up 11 million people and send them back to their country? they are not going to do that. they are not going to do that. >> you're saying 11 million, it's more like 30 million. >> you're not telling the truth, not telling the fact. wait a minute, i've got to stop you when you tell these people something that's untrue. >> obviously felicia, john mccain is as jackie pointed out very aware of this faction of his party. the white house knows it too. how do they work around this with members of congress who come from districts that have very vocal, even if they are minorities of people who don't want a path to citizenship? >> i think it's a really interesting timing when you look at the leak of the white house plan they've be

"the washington post", u.s. schools brace for federal funding cuts. the "new york times" meantime highlights federal spending cuts threaten delays in air travel. let me bring in loren fox politics reporter for "u.s. news and world report" and "usa today" washington bureau chief susan paige. good morning. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> the president clearly thinks he has the upper hand. your poll yesterday suggested he does but is he in danger of overplaying it? >> well, it's always possible. we'll see what -- how much people really feel the impact if the sequester cuts go into effect as we think they probably will next week. but what we found in the new "usa today"/pew research poll is that about half of americans say it is going to be the fault of congressional republicans if they can't reach a deal. just 31% said they'd blame the president. that's pretty good standing for the president going into yet another one of these fiscal cliff hangers. >> they're talking about very serious cuts, one that could have by some accounts dire co
really ought to stop come paining and come back to the take and work with us. >> and while there are no 11th hour meetings, no real negotiations, but lots of finger pointing, the president says there is still time for a deal. >> here's the thing. these cuts do not have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little bit of compromise. >> john boehner has just come to the microphones. let's listen. >> i don't think the president's focused on trying to find a solution to the sequester. the president has been traveling all over the country and today going down to newport news in order to use our military men and women as a problem in yet another campaign rally to support his tax hike. now, the american people know the president gets more money, they are just going to spend it. and the fact is, he has gotten his tax hikes. it ti it's time to focus on the real problem and that is spending. the president has known for 16 months that this sequester was looming out there. when the supercommittee failed to come to an agreement. and so for 16 months, the president h
in new revenue, where were the spending cuts? now again he wants to raise taxes. i think it's time for us to cut spending. >> and those comments followed pat toomey, who said sorry, president obama, no more tax increases. mitch mcconnell said the government will not support more tax hikes in place of the meaningful spending reductions. so what's behind the president talking about this yesterday? >> it's no surprise. of course they're going to say it's d.o.a. they always say it's d.o.a. >> but is it d.o.a.? >> i'm not sure it is. i do think there is renewed pressure on republicans to get renewed spending cuts in this round. you see indications that house republicans especially are saying that they will swallow that sequester if that's what it takes to get actual spending cuts out of this president. >> the president didn't get specific, which is one of the criticisms yesterday. and house democrats want to replace the sequester by cutting farm subsidies. republican don't like that idea. so i guess what are the chances that the sequester, the cuts, that all this snaps. >> the sequester is loo
